Anderson Cooper & Boyfriend Benjamin Maisani Moving In (Photos)
CNN anchor Anderson Cooper is reportedly moving in with his boyfriend Ben Maisani, a 36-year-old NYC gay bar owner. They have been seeing each other for the last 8 months and now they are house-hunting in New York City.
Benjamin Maisani whose real name is Antoine, is the co-owner of gay bar Eastern Bloc.
"Anderson has found his 'Mr. Right' in Ben. Their relationship is so solid they want to move in together, and they've been looking at Manhattan real estate," a friend tells the National Enquirer.
"I've seen Anderson have crushes before, but he's been telling pals that this is the real thing," said another source. "He plans to sell his condo and move in with Ben. They looked at an old firehouse in Greenwich Village that Anderson wanted to convert into a residence."
Anderson Cooper, 42, has long been the source of gay speculation but he has never publicly come out as being gay.
"Anderson firmly believes that media members should keep their personal lives private, but for years he's dropped hints that he's gay," the source said.
"Now that he's with Ben - who is certainly not shy about his sexuality - Anderson is seriously considering publicly acknowledging his sexuality."
Cooper and Ben were recently spotted on a vacation in Jaipur, India. Ben broke up with his last boyfriend last winter and started dating Cooper shortly thereafter.
